Not Bad, But Not Good Either
24 February 2007 | by garyldibertSee all my reviews

Red Alert was filmed in 1977 with William Devane play the role of Frank Brolen, Michael Brandon plays the role of Carl Wyche, and Adrienne Barbeau plays the role of Judy Wyche. In a small town in Minnesota sits a nuclear power plant that goes into meltdown follow by a sudden explosion. Enters Frank Brolen and Carl Wyche who must figure out what started the meltdown. Enters Henry Stone who's the plant manager and he's the by the book type. When employees start to die Stone orders the plant in lock down mode. Wyche calls his wife Judy and tells her to get out of town and fast. Brolen and Stone get into an argument over the lock down which leads to Wyche going in any way. Things start to get worst and it's up to Brolen to get in to not only **** his Partner but the other workers. I bought this movie because of Adr8ienne Barbeau and I was disappointed. She didn't have a big part and for that reason I'm giving this movie 5 weasel stars.
